Rock the Foundation

Rock 11 banner 

Saturday, February 13 
7 p.m. - 11 p.m. 

 

Spend the evening at the Music Box Supper Club, a two-story concert venue and destination on the West Bank of the Flats, and help us celebrate 11 years of making a positive difference in the community!  “Rocktail” attire is recommended so you can mingle, eat, drink and dance to live music on the bank of the Cuyahoga. The Cleveland Metropolitan Bar Foundation’s Rock The Foundation will also be the event at which we will present the first ever Richard W. Pogue Award for Excellence in Community Leadership and Engagement to Christopher M. Connor, Executive Chairman of The Sherwin-Williams Company. All proceeds help raise money for Bar Foundation-funded programs.

 

Live music at Rock 11 will be provided by Cleveland's own Transportation Boulevard and the ever-popular No Name Band - come celebrate with us and dance the night away!
